Heading into Homestead-Miami
Coming into this race, NASCAR’s Big 3 qualified along with Joey Logano for the best to be crowned the 2018 champion. However, this race has more than only a championship. The next storylines are worth watching out for:
End of an Era for both JJ and Knaus
Sunday’s race marks the ending of an age as Jimmie Johnson and crew chief Chad Knaus will part ways after 17 decades. During that interval, this duo won 7 championships and over 80 races. They’ve won at every significant track and left their mark on the game that will never be matched . With that said, Knaus will proceed over to be the crew leader for William Byron and Johnson will partner with Kevin Meendering at 2019. Can Jimmie Johnson split his winless streak and earn his first win of 2018?
Truex Going later Logano
If Martin Truex Jr. and Joey Logano aren’t in contention for the championship late in the race on Sunday, Look out for retaliation by Truex. In Martinsville, a couple weeks ago, Logano bumped Truex from the way to win the race, while Martin finished 3rd. It was a move that drew the ire of this 78 team. Truex has said he will get retaliation when the chance presents itself.
